Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aidan Cole and his friends are a band of savvy — if cynical — New York journalists and bloggers, thriving at the intersection of media and celebrity. They meet at loft parties and dive bars, talking of scoops and page views, sexual adventures and new restaurants. And then, without warning, a bomb rips through a deserted midtown office tower, and Aidans life will never be the same.

Four days later, with no arrests and a city on edge, an anonymous e-mail arrives in Aidans inbox. Attached is the photograph of an attractive young white woman, along with a chilling message: “This is Paige Roderick. Shes the one responsible.”

An astonishing debut novel, American Subversive is a “genuinely thrilling thriller” (NewYorker.com) as well as “an exploration of what motivates radicalism in an age of disillusion” (The New York Times Book Review).

Synopsis:

In David Goodwillie's "powerful thriller" (Chicago Sun-Times), the lives of a young radical and a failed journalist intertwine after a bombing.
